Pia has grown up in a secret laboratory hidden deep in the Amazon rain forest. She was raised by a team of scientists who have created her to be the start of a new immortal race. But on the night of her seventeenth birthday, Pia discovers a hole in the electric fence that surrounds her sterile home—and sneaks outside the compound for the first time in her life.

Synopsis from goodreads.com
This week's Waiting on Wednesday features an immortal, unbreakable girl, created by scientists in a jungle. The cover and the synopsyis are fascinating. I heard, there were secrets in the jungle, but this secret seems huge! I'm curious as of what to expect from Pia, but it sounds like she's determined and active and I love that about a heroine.
I want him. And I want freedom. Most of all ... I want the truth.
This short teaser is taken from Jessica Khoury's website, where you can get a glimpse of the novel by hovering over the cover of Origin.
That just made me want to read this book even more!
